literacy, building an economy focused around art, innovation and technology, and supporting local and community policing initiatives. as the students we are glad to have here as well, rachel stanley is a junior at elon college majoring in international studies with all sorts of minors, political science, and she has worked with refugees and her region. she is the president of halal on her campus and the millennial values fellow so we are pleased that she is back. last but not least, mohammad usman is a senior at depauw university majoring in urban policy and conflict studies with a minor in religious studies. he was a part of the national bioethics bowl, the winning team in the last year so congratulations on that. and before attending depauw was a special assistant in advocate for acts of civil legal justice at the university of new york school of law. so welcome to all of them. i would like to hear from all of you, and last night when we heard governor romney talk about states as the laboratory of democracy so while that may have been a republican democrat comment it got me thin
government not much. state come of it more, local, a lot more. the federal government should be maintaining harmony among the states keeping them in line regards to protecting americans' rights keeping the nation in harmony that is on facebook. next up is cheri watching in des moines. an independent. good morning. >> caller: yes, i do agree with mitt romney. i think the government is getting way too big. that's my comment. thank you. >> host: next up is less in detroit. he wore on. good morning. >> caller: good morning. we in michigan have to decide in november whether to allow the state to come in to the city and as a public use to take over and print the financial manager were emergency manager for the cities that have financed the distress and take over the local government where they can come in and remove the city officials like the mayor and the city council. i don't think that's the the presidential candidate mitt romney had in mind when he wanted to say states have rights. what about the city's rights to elect their own elected officials? and help do they own? when you say governmen
institutions in germany. it is important these kinds of efforts be driven by local populations. things that are handed down from the united states typically don't work all that well. we are very pleased with all of you here. i hope you have lots of questions. steve, if i could turn this over to you. >> thank you very much for opening up this morning. let me add my welcome. we are delighted to see you all here this morning. it is going to be a very interesting conversation about syria and the challenges of managing a post assad transistor. as jim mentioned, this event is the culmination of a product that has been in gestation for about nine months. it is simply a coincidence if it is in relation to other forms of gestation. this is an opportunity for us to discuss a document the day after, which we have available for you to pick up and arabic and english on a cd, and it provides strategies of how syrians can cope with the broad range of challenges that are inevitably going to follow the transition to a post- assad era. this is very much the product of deliberations and debate among a gr
firewalls. the outcome so far, it is a catalyst for local and state leadership that opted into with which does represent a major difference from the no child left behind one size fits all. it is hard to force people to make change. this tool with other people who wanted to, and so much activity and progress -- that is a hallmark and an important part of the president's focus on education. >> let's get back to reauthorization. you mentioned the focus on energy, and how come reauthorization is done in the first term? >> the president and secretary worked hard. many meetings, there are people on the secretary's team went to many meetings and spoke about it. a lot of efforts to try to get that bill authorization done in the second half. the first half of four years there was a recognition with the stimulus getting passed in february, time was needed but the second half there was tremendous effort. congress was not able to agree. there were divisions in congress and heroic efforts to get bills then and was not embraced significantly by many in the republican party. some republicans were trying
. that is where between the local school boards, teachers and parents. now i don't -- i said i wanted to take a look at the department of education, and it's possible. but they do some good things so we don't want to throw that away. but we need -- any federal organizations basically as big as the department of education there is a lot waste. just to get that money to the states. they can do it themselves and that is a state issue but it would be more economical doing that. and we need to eliminate a lot of mandates mandated by the department of education. that's what i don't think a lot of career politicians, which i'm not, but a lot of career politicians really don't grasp how these mandates that the federal government mandates down to the state including education. they have to be paid for and it falls to the state's usually. the federal government will mandate. let's eliminate that and use our money wisely, focus it like a laser on bill local schools and the teachers and the school board's. that's how you improve education. >> moderator: mr. casey? casey: monica, this is important as it r
, and i do agree there's a lot of enthusiasm now. there's still local concerns. number one they've taken a lot of our energy throughout the fall and focused on the voter suppression across the country and in pennsylvania. >> as opposed to registering people to vote. >> the same resources that we have, and number two, they are saying they can ask and there will be all this confusion. they can ask for the idea but they still allow the vote and the interpretation of how that is right place at the grass-roots level is something we have a lot of concern about. >> which means are any of your group's getting people to operate as watchers in the critical states to make sure that if that happens they will say i'm sorry you don't actually have to have the ideal vote. >> [inaudible] today i was having my coffee with the senate and told me what a beautiful scene -- >> the book on president lyndon baines johnson one of the three books -- >> in the context and the momentum starts by describing in the south with an african-american brothers and sisters have to go through just to vote. people die and pu
prosecution because our office has civil. so we would have to turn that over to the local prosecutors or the u.s. attorney. we have been very good about, let's say, being draconian on fines. we've had a number of very large fines and i think a call it the legitimate telemarketing industry has a gold star next to indiana simply just it is not worth of cost of doing business. so whether you're on the do not call or not, at least up until the voip, we've been very successful just using the civil penalties but if i catch rachel i will certainly look for criminal statute. >> next question without touching too much nerves. do the federal rules supersede the state once on auto dialing? >> no. >> all right. shall we move on? you want to address it? >> i will say i think there are some open questions that have been filed at the sec on that topic and i don't believe the agency has addressed those questions and i don't think i should say more about that. >> we would be glad to have the hearing if you want to have one so. >> one more question. can somebody explain exactly what an auto dialer is? eric? >>
prevent attacks on u.s. troops in afghanistan from local police or service members if the goal to train them? >> well, first of all, i would not -- never stand here and say we can prevent it. there will be, again, this is an enemy tactic. infiltration, radicalization, influence. you know, this is a society that has suffered under conflict for 30-plus years where young men have often settled their grievances with a gun as opposed to a conversation. and so i can't prevent it. i mean, i just -- we've got to be honest about that. but what we can do is we can continue to work to mitigate that risk, and it's a complex issue. it gets at how do they come into the service, we call it vetting. and then it's while they're in the service, how do we, how do we partner with them to establish that level of trust that -- by the way, i mean, i think it's important to note, and the australians came to the same conclusion. it's often, one of the ways you can mitigate the risk is actually by becoming closer to them, not by walking away from them. you can't commute, i mean, this is just a fact, and i've don
this won't be a threat. and i believe that local decisions should be supported by local funding. that's where the property tax comes in. but i also believe in targeted aid which is why i support a reversal of the claremont decision that has really destroyed local public policy making for education as well as local funding and destroyed the opportunity for the state to provide for targeted aid to help our cities and towns in that area. and then we need full funding of special education and other mechanisms that will lower the property tax burden. but in the end it's a decision made by the decision makers in the cities and towns about how much they spend. >> moderator: do you have a follow? >> mr. lamontagne, specifically, do you have a plan to provide property tax relief to new hampshire residents? lamontagne: first of all, i do, and i think what it is is bringing back economic recovery to new hampshire. as goes economic recovery, so will go more revenues for state government, for example, and local communities in terms of broadening the tax base. that is the way it works. and then loo
for reason of competition. his competitor's wife was local phone operator. when someone very agrieved called, picked up the phone, ask the operator, connect me with the under taker guess who got all the business? he tried to invent his way out of the problem, a many competition problem. but also the volume of phone calls was getting too high for purely manual call processing. it just wasn't going to scale. and so you started getting abused even very early on. this is a pen register, real of paper tape with associated gadget tri. was back in the 1920s a pen register is a device recording what phones are, what phone numbers a particular phone is dialing. again this is a creature of the dial age, back when you're dealing only with manual operators, you asked the operator, who just called me. by the 1920s when most calls were dialed you already needed a mechanical gadget to keep track of who was calling whom. and you need it because there was already abuse going on by the 1920's. we also saw the start of data communications. here's a picture of teletype. this one is vintage 1963 but goes back to
and the message. you control the population is at the borders. you control local and regional events. it was true for the governments of the region. it is true for u.s. policy as reflected in the outsize focus on military capability. but today, information is ubiquitous. a generation ago in saudi arabia commie pressure nation from one or more of four sources, parents, teachers, imams or tribal leaders. every leader you make of the black area or iphone with every app known to mankind. a study abroad or colleges of many torments, living with students from other villages with different views. we have gone in the dark days of the cold war and eastern europe, worked would listen to their transistor radio to an era where saudis get 24 hour newscasts and receive constant twitter feeds. you cannot control the message and a longer. you can only influence. so the real question of the day, does the united states, and do the governments of the region had the necessary tools to be successful in an age of influence? let me close by thanking the national council for their leadership role in the great dialogue o
the paperwork. this has been a combination of policy choices again at the state, federal and local levels but also information technology improvements that have made things possible that were not available in the past. but a lot of these programs are under pressure now. some of it is so explicit political attacks aimed at outreach programs and aimed at the policies that have made it easier for people and on the programs. we also know the state agencies are stretched very thin. there are a lot of demands on them and their funding has been caught and in some we're hearing stories of unemployment insurance and people calling and calling to apply for their benefits and just getting a busy signal over and over again. it is a real opportunity to think about how we can build on the progress we've made so far. how can we prevent it from wearing away and what improvements can we make in the future. in particular, the affordable care act or the health care reform presents an opportunity to make some improvements as we move forward. i am going to wave to reports also available outside of the coaliti
. but again, part of this change is something that in the chapter is how do we move the local process to do things differently. of the how to structure policy and what structures to insert communicating across agencies. >> you want to talk a little bit about network? and we get the mic of your? we will have more time for questions and comments after the second. >> i guess what i would say this just in general that we do try to pay quite a bit of attention to the political dynamics, which is something that i think is more background, which is including sort of terry's analysis which i agree with, much of it. i agree a mix system is where we are, what makes is. but the premise that in a mixed system are going to get a highly redistributed system i think as a political question, and it's problematic to we addressed primarily by looking at two things. one is it's a data issue that helen has mentioned i want to emphasize one aspect of it, which is weird at all interested in the chapter in comprehensive view of what government does but also how we assess what works and doesn't work. right now man
. >> regarding health care, what responsibility, if any, do you believe rest with the state and local government and what responsibility if any way with the federal government? howell: thank-you, justice. healthcare is one-fifth of our gdp. the largest not-for-profit health care organization in california. we have known for a long time that we have to have affordable quality health care. when joseph asked about the responsibilities, it is all of our responsibilities. under the affordable care act and think it was the first beginning of what we need to do in order to reform health care system to make it affordable for all of us. i like the ability to put my two boys back on to the health care system that we have to wait until they're 26. i also like the ability to make sure that no one is a slave to their job when it comes to pre-existing conditions. you know, health care is a big deal, but whether -- is governor romney becomes president we will have romney care or obamacare because we need to solve this problem, and we need to solve it immediately. it is a collaborative effort between private, p
and should test but i like the idea of more local control and decision making for how we support our education and i like the idea of federal dollars falling into students, so i like to see more parents be able to choose things for them. unlike senator kent will i support public charter schools and supports innovation and i'm not someone will be a tool in the u.s. senate race at >> senator cantwell? cantwell: education is so important. as someone that went to school and got to go to it from college and know how important it is, but ednrique, your questions or with early childhood education and that's why i want to make sure that we don't have a ryan budget that would cut some of our most essentials education programs. i want to make sure that we invest in early childhood education and vindicate recalled system i've been focused to make sure that we continue science, technology, engineering and math. some of the best investments i've seen in the states have been at the school district or delta high school and the evergreen school in southwest washington or the asian high school. they
, and indeed the pla is tasked with running the local war under the conditions of information as asian. so, the pla is now charged with seizing information superior rate on a defined as the ability to freely use information and to deny the use of information to your opponent, and this is important because what they view now is the ability to speed with which the military is able to make decisions is the traditional factor and why the military is successful on the battleground and there's two ways you can prove this, and of your own decision making ability speed through the better system and the other is that you can deny those of devotees to your opponent. and we actually see that happening now both in the chinese doctrine and the technology. however, information superiority does not have to be achieved through out all battlefields for all time. you see the writing that they are saying that information superiority can be achieved locally and in a certain place as well as in a certain time to read what you're seeing here is what you're talking about in a striking specific node that opens up
country's interest in local communities interest in having kids educated for success in jobs and even prepared for college and citizenship it is not industry. on specific point you've made, to make two different points. one is you mentioned there wasn't a call for reducing formula fund. i've heard even governor romney recently has said he won't respond to but he won't cut them. last night your co-chair said he won't decrease, you said tonight he wants a more incentives before competitive grants. i think yourself, it has to come from somewhere. so that's where my take is, if you're not increasing funny butcher increasing income, on the affordability question, so i think you mentioned there is again, to decent people to care deeply about the future of america and education. two different views of how to get there. you mentioned the word dialback and you it to dialback certain things, not dialback others. i think what you said and the campaign said you want to dialback the president's focus on supporting federally supported state efforts to raise standards, for the common core, that you
which we saw in the timber. it's complicated. and many local communities and global communities struggle to chart the right course in this complicated fray. our program, working where we are around the world is painfully aware that in the turmoil and the trauma that marks the environment of conflict and the nation democracies and countries facing significant political turmoil and transition, religious influence in shaping social attitudes and behaviors with respect to violence, governments and attitudes towards other groups is often heightened. and of course, religion heightened influence is not always for peaceful ends, particularly when the media is added to the cocktail that can incite violence, locally but also across the international borders and are increasingly shrinking world. again as we witnessed in september, 2012. our program also notes from our experience on the ground that in most cases, government and policy alone does not and cannot address religious dynamics that shape civil society. in fact in many instances, civil society organizations may be those best positioned well
. vilsack: i said i'm very focused on the local and i am. i would start on the local. i said i saw the world and this district through the lens of a teacher. i see my job much the way i would on the first day of school with all the promise that entails tails. and i would like at these counties as 39 separate entities as many different communities. i would want to make sure that i helped each of them maximize their potential by creating jobs. i have spent the last year-and-a-half laying out my plan for layers of economic opportunity and you know i always carry my football with me, one of the things i talk about is creating another layer of bio economy and making things from what we grow within 10 or 15 miles from all the small towns. >> moderator: those watch us what would the football have to do? vilsack: the football is made of soybean. almost any car people drove up in came from destreets and seats are made from to product. there are plastic bottles from coca-cola or using cow manure to creates a fault. we can make what we have here within 10 or 15 miles in this community. >> mr. king in 2
>> governor. >> and those grants which make it possible for states and local communities to clean up rivers and harbors and streams. [applause] >> mr. vice president, jimmy carter has called this the worst campaign ever. richard nixon has called it trivial, superficial, and inane. whoever started down this road first, of negative campaigning, the american people, from all reports coming to us, are completely fed up. now, do you have any solutions to suggest? is there time left to fix it? there are 26 days left. for instance, would you agree to another debate, before it's all over, so that the american people would have another chance before election day to compare you two? >> no. i will not agree to another debate. the american people are up to here with debates. they had thirty of them. we had seven of them. now we've got three of them. i am going to carry this election debate all across this country in the last whatever remains of the last three and a half weeks, or whatever we have and the answer is no. i am not going to have any more debates, we don't need any more debates. i've spelled
respects, the power of technology and communications for this enabling people and local levels to act in ways they cannot at federally and as the act in the region and the state level it becomes then clear of the federal level what needs to be done, so from my standpoint, the beginnings of this process are sufficiently still new that it would be assertive third reason why we would be surprised by wife this relatively inaction of the federal level but at the state level a lot is going on. what lisalyn and dave are doing is informing this and energizing it to make it easier at the state level. >> why >> let me first give the most simple answer to your question him something everyone can do when they leave the room. go to the web site, there is one box that shows you how to tweet and twitter of the debates and ask them to ask a question about reducing poverty and addressing your early childhood child care. you can do that, all of your friends can do that. it's easy to get enough people to do it. there's also a map that puts child care on the map encouraging to get state elec
against local multiple listing services. there are a variety of different ways we can do it. where there is overlapping jurisdiction sometimes takes more cooperation. for example, in certain areas like the ftc of a common carrier exemption. so a common carrier act, as a common carrier we can't bring a proceeding against them but for some things involving cramming of false charges onto a bill we could talk to the ftc who could focus more on carrier and ftc could focus on the third party aggregator who is not the carrier. >> next question. . . >> will they reach resolution or have things stalled. >> seize the microphone here, but i think the only person in the room who's actually involved in that process as an invited expert, and i have to say that it's not, it's not going well. [laughter] it's, um, it's really remarkable to me that, um, this process which i think many people in industry and in this country signed onto on the understanding that they reached with the white house in february that this was really intended to work out a techal specification -- technical spes fission case
coverage of our local race at 6:00 that night. on behalf of kitv 4 news and civil, thank you, aloha and good night. >> and we have more campaign 2012 coverage coming up live here tonight on c-span2. we go to phoenix for a debate between candidates vying for a seat in arizona's new ninth congressional district, democrat and former state representative key stint cinema is up against republican city council member vernon parker live tonight at 8:30 eastern here on c-span2. and live now to remarks from the former director of mossad, israel's intelligence agency. he'll give his perspectives on the israeli/palestinian conflict, also iran's nuclear program and the uprisings in syria and egypt. ephraim halevy has served in the no o sad for almost 40 years. this is just getting started. >> 2,500 people since its inauguration. um, jane harman, the president and ceo of the wilson center, will introduce today's speaker, efraim halevy, the former director of the mossad and former head of the israeli national security, and aaron miller, the center's vice president for new initiatives, will
down. and that's up to the local governments. but we have cut law enforcement because of these deep budget cuts very deeply. the last two highway patrol schools have been canceled. we're training no troopers to come in. i think they lost around 200 positions. anything we do is an unfunded mandate, i would talk to the highway patrol, i would consider it. i'm not going to give you a definitive answer right now. >> mr. mccrory? mccrory: based upon the recent decisions of courts, and it's probably going to go all the way to the supreme court again regarding some of the details laws, i don't think it's needed at this point in time because let's wait until those are challenged. i do know this, that as a mayor and as a governor, i'm sworn not only to uphold the constitutions of north carolina, but i'm also sworn to uphold the constitution and laws of the united states of america. and as mayor, federal laws were enforced by our local police. and vice versa. if federal law enforcement officials saw something that was a local law being passed, they have the authority to pull the person over.
is the importance of recognizing the power of subnational government, regional government, local government because so many times i think that cities and states, provinces around the world are waiting always for some action on a national level. for instance, about mental issues. the fact of the matter is the local government can actually do about we had a disagreement with washington in the bush administration, but we moved forward. we didn't wait for anybody. they made commitments for 25% and 85% came up with three renewal and the list goes on. all those things we did and actually so much so secretary-general ban keynote spoke at the opening session of the u.n. to encourage all the other countries to go in the same direction and if the national government, the subnational government would have the power and create an organization to encourage subnational government to go in the direction and not to wait for the national government. severe environmental issues are so many other issues you can address any subnational level. you are to teach that and make people aware of states and cities and countie
success is in the business world. >> i'm bill, local community bank, as a community banker we are in the business to open our communities achieve their goals and successes. and that's what we do. >> i'm been with standing security, and they teach five days a week to technologists online, and i try to challenge other instructors to be better by giving them new and creative ways to educate their students and push them to the next level. >> thank you. good job of educators. -- the job of educators is to prepare students for the world of work, for higher education, or for the military. let's not forget that as a viable option. the challenges are great, but the opportunity is even greater. together, we can make a difference. and it can start right now. when i think of education, i think of opportunities. i think of hope, and i think of partnerships. the journey of partnerships can begin right now, right to today, and you've already proven that. what lies within us is greater than any challenge we may face. before you leave your today i want you to shake persons and to your left, af
your local election official. >> host: excellent. we'll go to tracy from long beach, california, waiting on the independent line. tracy, you're on with david becker of the pew center on the states. >> caller: good morning, david. just a quick question. i was just wondering, how do you protect the sanctity of the vote if you're unable to verify these mail-in ballots? i mean, you couple that with like here in long beach, um, and i go to my precinct, i actually walk in and vote, and, i mean, they never card anyone or ask for id. and to me, that just seems a recipe for fraud. and i get the pundits. there's only a minute amount of voter fraud, but the way i read it, jeez, it just seems to be a recipe for voter fraud. thank you very much. >> guest: sure, thanks, tracy. that's a really good question. of course, the states very much want to protect the integrity of their elections, and different states come to different conclusions how best to do that, but every state does have a way of protecting the integrity and insuring those that come in to vote or vote by mail are, in fact, the pe
and the college and universities and there is the president of the local chamber of commerce and my goal is to represent people in my family and the way i grew up. concentrate on education of all levels and higher in education, public higher education and put together on health care for people and of making sure they protect the medicare and social security and work to create -- people to be trained and skilled for the jobs that are out there and also making sure that we protect the minimum wage and making sure that the work pays and the conditions on the job have a right to organize and we can move forward and have a good society that is healthy on that and that is what i think i am proud of and i am proud of the fact that by working across the aisle as well. the bills with jim leach and i've done bills with trade goudy i've done bills on the committee hearings with chris shays and mr. chaffetz. we have done some very bipartisan investigations and bills on that basis. the thing i'm most proud of is the republican party looks over to the right and became more and more extreme. this party
and in encouraging thing. and, you know, we see it as we monitor coverage around the country. i mean i think local tv one might argue has a particular responsibility here because of the vehicle through which most of the political ads are being aired, but i think i've been struck by the extent to which local news broadcasts actually do feel a responsibility for this and the sort of fact checking or claim vetting the uzi on the local broadcast kind of better than i would have expected. to make a more pessimistic point, what i don't think the media has been able to do essentially while i think the attention and the scrutiny to the rhetoric coming from the campaign is increased, there's not a sort of shift in the unwillingness or the inability to move the sort of agenda of the campaign and a more fruitful discussion, and we saw some of that in the presentation at the beginning. you basically have romney sort of trying to let the economy do his work for him at the beginning and more recently i think sending the attacks on his character, and you have obama basically saying romney is a terrible rich person
gift to the big apple, and as one of mr. murdoch's headline writers my say, local boy makes good. [applause] mr. murdoch, as you all know, took a newspaper business from down under up and over the competition to make news corporation a truly global business. for him the headline might be media mogul routes rivals. well, his international perspective on the intersection of business and immigration will be fascinating to hear. to moderate the discussion we are pleased to welcome. the assistant managing editor and executive washington editor of the "wall street journal", also writes a column in the "wall street journal" a couple of times a week. capital journal. terrific, terrific, terrific reading. people often say to me, how do you know what you know? and i say, i've read gerry. that is the reason. so to get things going i am pleased to introduce another talented and accomplished chief executive who is also a member of the partnership for new american economy. our good friend, well-known to all, the mayor of this great city, the hon. tom bonino. [applause] >> you want to -- >> thi
week there seems to be another town exploding, and these are social -- local, social and economic issues that aren't being addressed and, um, and this sort of feeds into this highly-alienated youth. i'm not going to -- i met with -- [inaudible] for two and a half hours a week or two, and the pgd's well aware of these issues and trying to address it in various ways, but i don't think they've gotten into the nitty-gritty of how i to reform the private sector. they're talking about subsidies, jobs for them. so there's a lot more that could be done in that area. but let me point out something very important, i think, that came up this morning. the pjd won landslide electoral victories with very few votes. pjd got 1.2 million votes in a country of 33 million people and won in a landslide. in many districts in morocco, spoilage of ballots was the second winner after pjd. so it was pjd, spoilage, and then another party. so you still have a highly-alienated and disconnected young people for the most part who are willing to register to vote, go to vote and then do something unorthodox to t
does what in the different parts of the world. one, it also means being able to identify locally not only through the internet. the internet is nice, but it is a different approach of what people are doing. and again, the social media doesn't make resolution. education makes revolution. middle class mix revolution not the social media and for that we need to be more aware of the indicators emerging and who is doing what now in this different civil society, and for that i think it is a better understanding to be able to bring new skills. people in this part of the world and i will finish on that. admiring the u.s. for its capacity of its dictation and a entrepreneurship. of course we can bring entrepreneurs from the middle east to the u.s. and vice versa. it doesn't create the positive cross pollination. how do we make this work? this would be a very important way to feel more secure as a society because as we know, democracy doesn't fight each other. so, what i am lining up here is some elements are more long-term approach which may be very frustrating especially a type of electi
past powerful state-owned enterprises and local government interest that might resist them. at present it doesn't look good because at present, china's paul pierce tinicum he only has one economic for the. that's is the portfolio of the premier. he has been around for the week economic manager. his predecessor did not rely too much on the bureaucracy behind him. yet his own team. he came up his own reform plans and he rammed into. he did not rely on agencies. he is very dependent on the nation development reform commission to those of us who were close with the nation development for commission with respect our colleagues but also realize that the policies that make it to the top o of the organization are often not as cutting-edge as what china needs to move forward. so it would be great if we could have another leader of the topic on an extra game and not get bogged down in politics. on my last trip to beijing i did hear that he has his own team working on a transition plan for at least one sector of economy. that team is not at indy rc. it is located external. i noted that was her in
to the local governments, but we've cut law enforcement because of the deep budget cuts very deeply. the last schools were canceled, training no troopers to come in, lawing 200 positions. i would talk to the highway patrol, consider it. i'm not going to give you a definitive answer now. mccrory: based on the decisions of the court, and probably all the way to the supreme court again with the detailed laws, i don't think it's needed at this point in time. wait until those are challenged. as a mayor and governor, i'm sworn not only to uphold the constitutions of north carolina, but i'm also sworn to uphole the constitution laws of the united states of america. as mayor, federal laws are -- were enforced by the local police, and vice versa. if a federal law enforcement official saw something that was a local law passed, they have the authority to pull the person over. there's got to be cooperation whether it's a federal bank robber, local police help with that, and vice versa i do think that i'm a big strong supporter of the 287g program. in fact, i supported sheriff's efforts in our county to u
that's covered dramatically on local news, they get a lot of free publicity in that area. so where a candidate did this, and the candidate is talking about or what audience a candidate is addressing is subtle cues about what their strategy is and who they see as their path to victory. let's start by taking look at as you can see, the democratic strength is in urban areas in the city of dayton, the city of columbus, the city of cincinnati. it's in the southwest part of the state. you see the three blue counties. that's old coal country mining area that's highly white working-class, appellation influence. the county is near the park spurred market, is the home of ohio university. and then you've got the industrial area of lake erie. and slightly down there. the blue dots show what the democrats have visited. and here you can see, based on where they visited, that they have been employing an early voting strategy. that each place they visited is a place that has a significant -- bursar evan has a significant african-american inner-city population. each one is one where currently, if y
upheaval. the state, meanwhile, has shown itself able to contain local unrest, has largely dealt with internal insurgency, and appears able to avert opposition. what is it less equipped to deal with? what signs should we look for to suggest or not a coming shift in the status quo? do any algerians or individuals enjoy sufficient popular credibility they are in a position to influence events from outside the system? algiers leadership is poised for a significant transition. as they confront a shift that is taking place, as members of the revolutionary generation either retire or pass away having been the dominant force in politics for half a century that it's no secret aging and ill and widely expected not to run again when the term is up in 2014. he could even step down beforehand, and there's per sis tent rumors to that effect. the battle to succeed him is on among members of the political elite, but the outcome of that battle is certainly undetermined, i think, at this point. most observers expect the military to play some role in the choice of his successor, but the military's
people, you talked about businesses, you talked about the federal government, and local governments, and governors lay down their budgets in january, and, now, i want you to pretend you are the adviser todd governor and tell him what to do in the budget to portray how your state is going to deal with problems that it's going to cause. >> bob, you do a lot of work in state and local governments? >> i'm not sure. dick raises a good question. i don't know what to advise. i think for state budgets, the big question is not whether you get a deal in lame duck or january. the bigger question is are we going to have bigger cults in discretionary spending, non-defense discretionary spending well below the levels and caps of the budget control act begin one-third is grants and state and local governments, and are we going to have big cost shifts in medicaid to states? to me, those are the two biggest factors affecting state budgets in terms of what the federal government does, and it's hard to know the outcomes on those until the deal begins to unfold so i'm not sure in the interim what -- >>

these deals at the local level. um, the -- and one way that i find libya's very different, and it was touched on this morning s that libya has kind of an anti-islamist thing going on. ya brill's party did get 39 of the 80 seats, his group, and 18 went to the muslim brothers, and t backlash in benghazi and other things, basically, every young person i met in libya voted for ya breel. so there's a very different die namic. libya's the only country where positive views of america are higher than negative views. it's most comparable to iran in terms of views of the united states. so there's a very different dynamic on the world vis-a-vis western intervention, vis-a-vis islamism notwithstanding what we're seeing in the news. and i that thought the uprising in benghazi was hugely important to think about when 30,000 people rose up a couple of weekends ago to throw out islamist militias. the population once again taking control of a situation where a dysfunctional government wasn't able to. and i found the intervention very interesting because in many ways i think the main bogeyman was the fear of w
to local intelligence services, and that's been the big problem i now, we've lost the contacts in these intelligence services that really provided us information about the bad guys. >> well, but at a huge cost to, i mean, you know, it's not like there's any great notaly for the libyan knew cab rat or the egyptian, right? >> we had a great relationship with mussa cushion saw. he was giving us all, and, you know, at the end of his life, gadhafi was really a tolerated nuisance. when condoleezza rice visited in 2006-2007, it was the highest ranking american to visit libya since, i think, vice president nixon's visit in 1957 or '58. there was really a big about face, and that was the big middle east foreign policy of the bush administration put forward, that they had, um, that they brought libya back in from the cold. and that was what we had there. yes, there were a lot of human, there were human rights violations and, yes, there were a lot of problems, but that didn't change the fact that our intelligence services really benefited from the coordination that they had. >> well, but,
example of the mess we have gotten ourselves into. we cannot agree that the fbi and the cia and local police can share information without doing it through a fusion center which cost $90 and builds another whole level of bureaucracy into our system. i don't know if that is responsive. and please join me in thanking our distinguished panel.

five good gse from 12% when it was on the under local authority control to almost 90% now. the transmore make has been a-- transformation has been astonishing. smart uniforms, teachers in suits, children taught physics, chemistry, and biology. extra resources for those in need, but no excuses is lacking. and when you see as a parent schools like that, just poses one question, why can't every school be that way? why can't our children have those chances chance. it's not because parents are ambitious enough. most of them are overly subscribed. it is because the old educational establishment, the leader of the teacher union, the law labour party they are resist stand in the way. when we have a failing school and want to turn it in to academy, the labour authority and the teaching units said no. inspirational teachers and parents in brings ton, -- when they wanted to open free schools, the left-wing establishment said no. when we proposed more pay for good teachers getting rid of bad teachers longer school dais to help children learn. flexible school hours to help parents work
example, just to be clear-cut and most of the money i think those two local tv stations. of course there are very big local tv stations and conglomerate local tv stations. but those tv stations make a huge amount of money from political ads. it's a great business partly because they can essentially inflate prices, make up quotes, bid prices because no one knows what the real prices people pay it and they are resisting proposal. can can describe better than i can. >> this is the whole idea in the beginning of the files in the sec. the tv stations themselves and broadcasters were saying it is too burdensome to have to put this stuff online. it's too burdensome to make this easily searchable for the public. before it was the beginning of august and is required to be put online to find out what groups are spending an candidates are spending, the actual amount come you had to go there in person and pull records yourself. that's incredibly burdensome as a citizen in this country. so you've got that and you've got the fact that these ads run by candidates is a certain amount of money does
michael moore, nancy pelosi. think your local college professor. you know, think the driver of the crazy car with all of the bush is hitler bumper stickers on the back of the car. think the gender studies wearing the head band at your local whole foods store. you get the picture; right? they no , nominate professions leaving a cultural imprint, cultures like journal ism, arts, academia, and america's fastest band of intertapers, circumstance day sew lay success bats. who are these people who call themselves liberals? how does such a small group impact our lives? what motivates them? i'm in an excellent position to answer the deep questions because i've been watching liberals closely for over 30 years, studied liberals like jane goodall studies her chimps. [laughter] in their natural habitats and without judgment, in silence mostly because we barely speak the same language. i've been tireless in research. i lived with liberals, broke bread with them, humored them, teased them, prodded them, and, yes, even loved some of them, some my friends, and some members of my own family. my commitme
that the united states has the local role, but i don't think it's entirely terrible either. because they are both ending up in the same way to see which one is better. and i would prefer otherwise, but i don't think that's the end of the world for british banks or american banks. or for either one. you get europe to follow suit, as they should. they are not the enormous threat right this minute, but they could become obviously. >> but by threat, you mean threat to the financial system? >> yeah, yeah. just to kind of benefit to the economy. characterization of all kinds of statistics and i'm going to give you an uncertain statistic. we added statistics for value added by industry in the united states. i'm sure you have them here. it's pretty tricky. it's pretty straight forward in the manufacturing business. if you look at value added numbers in the united states for the first decade, the decade before the crisis rough ly, you'll see phenomenal numbers, value added in the united states of the financial industry went from 5 to 10. if you look at it in real terms, it went up very little. so you had
enforcement and local civilians and the pus limbs and sheikhs -- muslims and sheikhs and muftis are killed by the radicals. so russia has a serious problem on its hands with that. um, beyond that a lot of analysts point out that for putin and for the russian government foreign intervention in a situation where there's an insurgency or even civilian mass protests you should the slow -- under the slogans of democracy for intervention in a situation like that is a big taboo, it's a no-no. and is that's why they want to support the syrian regime against this civilian insurrection. and let's not forget, this is in syria -- and we didn't mention that -- a minority rule by the alawite group, by the sect, if you wish, that is close to shia over 80% of the population which is sunni. and somehow the russian leaders and the russian analysts tend to disregard it or don't give enough weight to that. and i really don't understand how come that little but significant detail is being, is being ignored. i find when i talk to senior russian officials, a woeful misunderstanding, a lack of knowledge about the
in the field, whoever that cell is and the local law enforcement folks who are actually out there in the streets. so all these people need to know the information it will be fully effective. the problem is, of course, that raises the possibility of that that affirmation will be compromised. and, you know, we saw that. he was able to get access to an amazing amount of information, even though he is relatively low-level military. that is an operational concern. the decision has been made. better to have more information spread farther and water within the government so that we are all more effective and then we will worry about trying to keep people from looking at intermission, but that is, you know, one of the reasons why we are having leaks. >> i believe you are serving. the wall was coming down. did you have any comments on this topic? >> well, i believe you were serving as the law was coming down. >> yes. well, the amendments, the patriot acting as the game pretty dramatically. basically the patriot act made something like potted plants out of the judge's on the question

, and more importantly passed the standard enterprises in local government interest that might resist them. at present, it doesn't look good because at present, a's pilot committee only has one economic portfolio, that's the portfolio of the premier. he has that portfolio right now. wen jiabao has been a relatively weak economic manager. his predecessor did not rely much on the bureaucracy's behind him to come up with ideas. he had his own team and reform plans and ram them through and didn't rely on agencies. wen jiabao is different. very dependent on the national development commission. those of us with the national development commission really respect or colleagues but also realize the policies that make it to the top of the organization are often not as cutting edge as with china needs to be putting forward so it would be great if we get at the other leader of the top that could reliably external team and not get bogged down on the politics. i do believe that li has his own team effort least one sector of the economy. that team is not -- it is located externally. that is interesting.
before the election, one of the local papers has come out with a story about a woman who was a patient of his when he was a physician, a decade ago or so, who they had an affair and he is on paid urging her to have an abortion but this is not something ago civil and very conservative, socially conservative rural tennessee. and so now the conservative state democrat, the state senator who is running against him looks like he's got a chance now, where he didn't earlier. so here's an october surprise that isn't necessarily something that a candidate said but it's something that comes to indie media, timely document dump if you will. i think the "huffington post" was the first outlet to report this, this affair with a patient. and then the local paper just reported another after that he had had with the patient a decade ago. so this is a race where a couple of timely document dumps have really made what should be a competitive congress -- contest into something that is a close race. >> host: what about this president election, what could be that's already happened a possible october surpri
